Summertime Has Arrived

Whew! It was like 97 degrees today at my house...keep in mind that my temperature sensor is under the house....3 feet from the outside wall and 24 inches off the ground...where NO sun can get to it. Heat index was 104 at 6 PM tonight.

Yes, it is summer in Texas.

With that in mind, we are thinking that we will move the motorhome to the ranch Sunday or Monday which will put us there in time to continue preparations for the 4th of July party. It looks as if it will be an "event" for sure. I must test the satellite system before we go because I was unable to get a signal from the indian reservation due to the trees and want to make sure that trees were the real problem and not a bad cable.

The good news is that we are making a difference in the hay fields and are putting "artificial rain" on about 8 acres a day..which is a lot of water. (One inch of rain falling on 1 acre of ground is equal to about 27,154 gallons and weighs about 113 tons) See Water Equivalents for more.
